I get these types of questions...except with regard to bass fishing. I've been a serious bass fisherman for at least 35 years and occasionally I get the "hey..you fish alot, I want to take my son to the lake, how do you catch a bass, what do you use...etc, etc...They want 30 years of experience in 2 paragraphs.:shock:

My wife and kids call these “bbq consults” - I do love a good bbq consult. Some padawans, however, never listen. They’ll let you feed them but you can’t teach them all to fish... some do get hooked, though. ;)

Then you get to eat their good eats...

These are fun. I usually get them in text or group chats from people that have seen my pictures (most recent was 'how did you pull off that smoked/fried wings?) It's especially great when they follow your advice to favorable results.

I love these. I get some on cooking advice and mostly on cooker advice. I like that he only wanted to hear what he wanted to hear. Those minor details are irrelevant, right?
